Golden Masjid Dome at Sunrise, ©Ian Garrett 2018. Acrylic on Canvas 12 x 10 inches.
The atmosphere in the morning just after Fajr and before the sunrises is a truly peaceful and magical time. It is said that the one who goes to the Masjid with the intention to pray Fajr Prayer and thenstays in his place of prayer remembering his lord will receive a great reward.
Al-Tirmidhi narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays Fajr in congregation then sits remembering Allah until the sun rises, then prays two rak’ahs, will have a reward like that of Hajj and ‘Umrah.” He said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “In full, in full, in full.”
The painting depicts the scene of the sun’s rays piercing through the dark of night as seen from the window of a masjid.
